2 Swedish great-grandfathers
1 Norwegian great-grandfather
1 German great-grandfather
None of them were still alive when I was born. My father never met one grandfather and the other died when he was very young.
My mom never met either grandfather. One died when her father was a boy. Her other grandfather died when she was young, but she never met him.
2 Norwegian great-grandmothers
1 Swedish great-grandmother
1 German great-grandmother
All 4 of them were alive when I was born. My Norwegian great-grandmothers were Kaja and Helena (top picture). Kaja died when I was an infant. Helena died when I was in college. I met her once when I was about 5 years old.
Bertha (bottom picture) was my German great-grandmother. I remember her trying to teach German to me. She died when I was in high school.
Clara was my Swedish great-grandmother. She died when I was little. I have a picture of her holding me at my first Christmas.
